ATLANTA (AP) — The remnants of a pre-Thanksgiving storm that swept through Georgia didn't appear to be causing major delays Wednesday on highways and airport runways as travelers headed to holiday destinations.
Despite winds that were whipping up gusts of 36 mph late Wednesday morning, most flights were arriving and departing with no major delays at Atlanta's airport, the world's busiest.
Aviation General Manager Louis Miller said the de-icing of jets in the early morning hours Wednesday caused departing planes to be delayed by 20 to 40 minutes. But he said late Wednesday morning that things were moving well and no major problems were expected at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Jessica Brady, a spokeswoman with AAA, said 1.24 million Georgians were expected to travel at least 50 miles during the Thanksgiving holiday period.
